William Shakespeare

This 1984 bas-relief of William Shakespeare by Frank C. Gaylord stands at the Old Globe Theatre in San Diego California.

Shakespeare holds a quill pen in his right hand and the globe in his left.

The final two lines of Shakespeares Sonnet 18 "Shall I compare thee to a Summers Day" form the inscription:

The sculpture was the gift of W. Bradford and Judith D. Ryland.
